I just started taking the birth control pill again for the first time in 12 years so I can't remember what it was like when I started before. I started my period on Friday, so I took my first pill of my first slide that night and have taken my pills each night since then. I ended up completely stopping my period Saturday morning and haven't started back.
Is it normal for the pill to cause you to stop your period like that immediately? I'm mainly taking it because I bleed heavy and a lot (my periods usually last between 12 and 15 days), so I thought it was super strange that I stopped right away. I'm starting to wonder if Friday was implantation bleeding instead of a period. It was super light, but that can be normal for my very first day.
I have 3 little ones, so running to the store to buy a PG test isn't the most convenient thing in the world and I also know that after 3 back to back pregnancies I tend to be paranoid that I'm always pregnant.
Do you ladies think I should test or is it normal for the pill to stop your periods this quickly?
